The story behind the image

Lerici is beautiful and has everything you might expect from Italy: An old castle, a tiny harbor with a nice piazza and several good and affordable restaurants. You will be able to capture nice views across the Mediterrean Sea. The part between Lerici and the opposite coastline is called Poet’s Bay.

For this photo we had to walk up to the cemetery which is located high above the town. The beautiful location and my trusted tele zoom helped me capture this view across the bay.
